The trouble with tribbles is one of my most favorite episodes of the original Startrek Series. And when I found thinkgeek on twitter and also the fact that they’ve actually gone ahead and made tribbles of their own, I couldn’t resist posting.
These tribbles are of course sterilized (according to thinkgeek at least! ) so they won’t multiply and over-populate the apartment like they did the Enterprise. They’re just too cute to not have. At least one. Or two. Or several.
CBS seems to have put up the full, original The Trouble with Tribbles episode on their site and then pulled it down for reasons unknown. So I found 2 parts of it on youtube – for those of you who haven’t seen the video – you MUST see this! It’s also truly funny apart from being the cutest episode in the original series. And then go and get the full original episode and watch that of course!
Other parts are missing, as far as I can see. Do comment if you find them and I’ll update this post.

If you love the tribbles you should check out the writer for that episode, and a few others, David Gerrold. I loved his his “War Against the Chtorr” Series.
Hey thanks for the heads up. Will add him to my reading queue.
